Embrace the Color Cream This Winter

I just want to start by pointing out that I have been in a black obsession for the last few months. I'm not really sure how it started, but I have just accumulated so many black pieces in my wardrobe. When I do laundry, I hardly have any colors to wash other than black. I just love how it goes with everything and looks really chic. However, I would like to branch out a little bit. I know that light colors like cream seam more like a winter color, but you can really make them work in the winter if you wear them the right way. I have challenged myself to wear more light colors like cream this winter, so here is how I plan to do that.

Tip #1: Add a Cream Colored Scarf

I think this is a really simple way to add a pop of brightness to a dark, winter outfit. A cream scarf can add some light to your outfit and your face, but it still has that winter vibe to it since it's a scarf. Go for a chunky circle scarf or just an oversized blanket scarf; whichever keeps you warmest!

Tip #2: Add a Cream Cardigan/Sweater

Layering is definitely an essential for the winter time. You can go outside and need five layers, and then go inside and just need two. A great way to add some brightness to your looks is by adding a cream sweater or cardigan. They will keep you warm, and look very chic next to all of the darker colors.

Tip #3: Wear a Cream Coat

If you have the idea of "go big or go home" when it comes to the color cream, go for a cream pea coat or trench. Most people wear black and grey coats in the winter time, so stand out with a cream colored coat. I think it looks very chic in the winter time and you will definitely stand out.

Stay classy,
